I don’t know what’s going on with dollar stores, but there seem to be a disproportionate number of disembodied body parts for sale there. I took one look at this sculpture and I just thought, “Why?”
Do people really want giraffe heads that seem to sprout from rocks? Am I missing some intrinsic artistic value? I guess die-hard obsessive giraffe lovers might want one, but wouldn’t they be horrified that their favorite animal has been decapitated so horribly? It looks like the head was ripped off. Just look at all the ragged edges on the neck skin – gah!
Just another fascinating/disturbing day at the dollar store.
Item found at the Dollar Tree on 2485 Notre Dame Boulevard, Chico.
